COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here at Tap It Brewing we take a unique approach toward crafting an India Pale Ale and challenge the current status quo. The goal? To craft an India Pale Ale hoppy in flavor and aroma that goes down smooth. We utilize the avant-garde method of First Wort Hopping, the technique of adding hops to the kettle before boil. This creates a harmonious explosion of hop aroma and flavor noticeable throughout the tasting experience. Fragrances of tangerine and grapefruit entice the nose. A thick hazy rich head leads drinkers toward an experience rich in citrus and earthy flavors ending with a smooth, sticky finish. The complex floral and citrusy tones from Citra and Simcoe hops welcome you, while two more hop varietals mate smoothly with four malt varieties for an unmatched aroma. Altogether, a crisp pleasurable full bodied taste. A word of caution: Drinking Tap It IPA around friends may cause envy.

Lightly hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light thin malts, touch of thin and sweet cream. Light orange hops, fresh and slightly tangy. Bitter-sweet pine. Touches of floral things and lime. Light semi dry finish with a piney lime linger and hop spice. Good stuff.

Bottle from Darby’s Liquor Store, Vancouver
Hazy golden color.The fruity hops aroma reaches you when the beer is still in the bottle. The mouthfeel is lean and rather dry; the malt flavor has toffee accents; the hopping is resiny, oily, piney, and fruity (with a touch of tropical fruits as well).
Very nice. I would like to drink it fresh from tap.

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a clear, golden body and a dense, big, off-white head that lasts and leaves lacings. The aroma could have more punch I think, pine cones, peach hints and a grassy and lightly malty touch. Bitter flavor with a hint of fluorine tooth paste. Pine cones, peaches and some freshly mown grass, as well as a little sweetness, just enough to let the bitterness play the lead role. Full to medium body, with a soft and maybe a little low carbonation level. Long finish with a tad to little bitterness. Overall, most definitely a nice brew, but it could use a bit more punch all the way. Very easy drinkable though. 130822
